Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

How accurately do I need to enter my coordinates?

For normal satellite observation, an accuracy of 10 km is perfectly adequate. This corresponds to approximately one tenth of a degree in the latitude and longitude coordinates. Iridium flare predictions need more accurate coordinates because they are more sensitive to the observer's location. You should try to enter your position to an accuracy of 1 km (about 0.01°) if you can.
